FOOD vitamin C is an antioxidant and has long been recognized as an important nutrient for supporting cardiovascular, immune, musculoskeletal, endocrine, and other systems.
Contains naturally occurring carbohydrates, lipids, proteins (including all ten essential amino acids), and truly organic bioflavonoids as found in the edible portions of citrus fruits with mixed plant fiber Cellula vegetabalis –all the nutrients shown above are contained in these foods. Unlike many so-called “natural” formulas containing vitamin C, C Complex is a food complex which contains no isolated USP ascorbic acid, but only contains foods, food complexes, and food concentrates.
Numerous university studies have concluded that supplements containing food nutrients are better than USP isolates. Food nutrients are better because they contain important enzymes, peptides, and phytonutrients CRITICAL to the UTILIZATION of vitamins and minerals which are not present in isolated USP nutrients. Published research has concluded that food vitamins are superior synthetic/USP vitamins.
